Drunk Driving Accident Takes Life of Woman

The only information given so far by police about the passenger has been that she was an adult. They state the driver of the car was not able to stay in her lane of traffic when she ran off the road and crashed into a nearby utility pole. The force of the collision caused injuries serious enough to kill the passenger, who was riding in the front seat.

The driver was also injured and was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. Her injuries were found to be minor and she was released. Police were waiting and charged her with homicide by vehicle and DUI, followed by time spent in the county jail. The crash is still under investigation.

Losing a loved one at any time is difficult but in a needless drunk driving situation during the holiday season, it can be agonizing. In attempting to obtain justice against the perpetrator, legal recourse in the form of a wrongful death lawsuit can be rewarding, should the court rule in the plaintiff’s favor. A Georgia attorney has the knowledge and experience needed when pursuing financial compensation in order to hold the offending party responsible.

Wonderful law firm that cares

I was injured in a terrible fall which left my foot, arm back and knee badly bruised. The Dozier Law Firm was awesome. Attorney Dustin Hamilton reviewed and accepted my case and within a few months he was able to settle my case for more than I ever imagine. The Dozier Law Firm is A+ in my book.
